Scooby Doo set list

Posted by ,

The Brick Fan is reporting the names of Scooby Doo sets. Rumours of the imminent release of sets based on the license have been around for a while, now this list appears to confirm them:

75900 Mummy Museum Mystery
75901 Mystery Plane Adventures
75902 The Mystery Machine
75903 Haunted Lighthouse
75904 Mystery Mansion

Allen at TBF adds "there’s no mentioning of whether the sets will be based on the old school Scooby-Doo show or from the upcoming Cartoon Network series Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!"

If I had to guess I'd say they are more likely to be based on the latter given the age of the former -- it was first on TV when I were a lad in the '70s!

If this is a pre-April Fools Day joke I'd be interested in the Mystery Machine but please let it be the one I was brought up with - the older one!

I am not real excited about these sets. I'm afraid the figures will be too much like the Simpsons (viz. unusable in anything else). Though maybe the set designs or the monsters will make up for it...

I hope its the old Scooby Doo, but knowing TMNT sets were from the new cartoon, the later is most probable. I am open minded thou, cant wait to see them :)

Oh what the. These guys better be regular Minifigs at minimum (then again why do I care, I'm not buying them).

If they were classic Scooby Doo these would all be must haves but if they are new series then I might give them a miss, just have to see what the mystery machine turns out like

If only they could have based the TMNT on the original series. I'm for old school. Would have been more a fan if they had done that. We'll see.

@LegoAthos - I agree set designs may offer some fun colors and elements like monsters

I would love to see sets of the originals, or even newer series. Just not the upcoming show. Anything but that. They look horrible int he images I've seen. :P

I wonder which set that jack'o lantern mask we saw on Taobao comes in. I'm hopeful for a lot of unique new monster masks and costumes for the villains! Classic sets would be better, but perhaps LEGO could handle the new show in an appealing way.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wow, that seems a bit odd. I never expected LEGO to do that.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm not familiar with this latest version of the show, but Scooby Doo in general has a lot of potential to be a fun theme, much like Monster Fighters was.

I see the point that people would rather the 70's style but these sets are marketed to children 1st and adults 2nd so by that logic they will most likely be from the new series. This line dose not really interest me either way.

I'll get the Mansion... if I can. ;-)

I remember "back in my day" when i would watch my favorite crime solving gang, if they could improvise so that they stay somewhat old school, with maybe just one or two of the new "upgrades" so that everyone, young and old, can enjoy them, that'd be great! Zoinks!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I can't stand this cartoon, and the film oh dear!
But saying that some of the set titles sound great so there maybe hope for me yet.
We will have to wait and see.

Gravatar
By in United States,

It's sort of hilarious that only one set does not have "mystery" in its name.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I can't wait to get these! Scooby was my favourite cartoon growing up and still is. Of course nothing can beat the original 1969 Scooby Doo Where are You? but I am sure that LEGO will do a terrific job with the theme and will appeal to a wide audience young and old.

Cool but not in my alley.

Scooby Doo was great until scrappy showed up and well you know what rhymes and that's what it turned into.
This is great news, my older daughter was watching the originals a few years back when they were airing them on the Cartoon Network I believe. She really got into them.
I think they could be really fun sets even for those who have little or no knowledge of the original series. Basically monster fighters for younger kids.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Other than having a more contemporary look the main characters look very similar to the originals so I don't think it will make much difference basing it on the new series. And as Gwarslave posints out most posts seem to be falling into the usual trap on here of forgetting that the sets will be aimed at children (who will watch the new series) not adults (who remember the orginal).

Gravatar
By in United States,

^Exactly and much more eloquently written than I would have been able to do.

Gravatar
By in United States,

^^There is a CN offshoot called Boomerang that mainly shows older cartoons... I've seen the original show on there a handful of times, so it's not like (us) kids don't have a way to watch the classic one. Plus, as a kid myself, I can't fall into said trap! :P

They better not be the new ones... the character designs make me want to puke...

By in United States,

This isn't Scooby Doo related, but The Brick Fan also has a post on their site about the rumored Star Wars sets coming in June and September this year.

Gravatar
By in United States,

75*** are the numbers for Star Wars sets so I'm wondering why Scooby-Doo sets would fall into that number group?

Gravatar
By in United States,

^ Well, they're followed directly by the Speed Champions sets (75908-75913) and Jurassic World sets (75915-75920), so...

No kid in Europe/Asia/Africa cares about that .. has to be the most wierd TLG IP ever. This is gonna bomb hard (and no, US sales aren't gonna pull this sucka home)

Goddamn TLG, how about using your combined intellectual power to come up with something GOOD and ORIGINAL instead of these pathetic IP grabs?

Lego Scooby Doo, awesome, always wanted that.
Going to put them up with the monster fighter series.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Whether or not this is good or bad really all comes down to how many they produce and where they are sold. If they're only available from LEGO stores I think it could work. But, if they send this everywhere then they grossly over estimated the popularity of Scooby Doo.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Original Scooby Doo, with classic Mystery Machine and I'm straight in there.
If it's a reworking, then I doubt it very much.

Sounds cute. Definitely need to see the pics of these before I make a decision. If they just do a wave of these five sets than I would be more interested than if it will be a long ongoing theme. I'm running out of room to store and display anything so I had to become a bit more picky with what I collect.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Man the original theme song to Scooby Doo is so classic. It's got such a great groove, and is so fun to sing. Those cartoons were great. Just plain silly fun for kids of all ages.

The Scooby Doo Kids or whatever it was called is actually pretty good, too. It poked good-hearted fun at the original while maintaining a silly vibe (there was a character called Red Herring that Freddie was always trying to blame for the crime).

I don't know jack about the new show, but if the minifigs and the Mystery Machine look anything like the original at all, it's a must-buy for me.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I saw Scooby Doo sets in some clone brand of building bricks (can't remember exactly who) in Toys R Us in the past year. Nothing about those sets made me want to even think about buying those crappy-looking sets.

Either TLG got the license away from the clone brand or this is a hoax...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Is this fake or legit? If legit, then I want all of them.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I hate jokes. If this is going to be real, then let it be. If not, let us know. Love Scooby Doo.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Honestly , being someone who is young yet loved the original (watched a lot of older cartoons growing up.) I could see why people want the older show as sets; heck I do. But it's probably not going to happen. Haven't seen any new show designs so don't have any stock in that , but the new TMNT is quite good an faithful to the TMNT of yore so hopefully the scooby doo show will be as well.

Anyway , hopefully at least the minifigures don't have those awful Simpsons style molded heads. And even more hopefully the mystery machine will look good.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Sounds really good. Just hoping that it's the original series because it would suit a larger variety of lego fans including afols ( even though it's more of a kids theme) because they obviously grew up with the show. Although 4 out of 5 of the sets kind of hint that it may be based off the new tv series. :'(. Oh well. Hope they're good.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Personally I just don't see this line being successful. But then if Lego haven't had to pay that much for the rights then it isn't so much of a risk for them.

This doesn't appeal to me though that's for sure.

Gravatar
By in United States,

This is the new Monster Fighters!

Jurassic Park is the new Dino.

Both are evergreen themes and if you like these, wait a few years and we'll see them again without the IP!

Gravatar
By in United States,

O, but, as for this theme, I'm all over it. I want a Scooby and Scrappy. The monster will be cool, too. But, the Mystery Machine is like the DeLorean and the Ecto-1, Iconic vehicles from the past.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I think it is great they are coming out. And I'm hoping for Simpsons (and Turtles) style heads rather than traditional minifigure ones.

I'm not too bothered what they base the main characters on - the old or the new. The new ones are a bit goofier, but by the time they have been done as minifigures, they will probably look the same (so long as they are not mini-dolls).

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I've watched every version of Scooby Doo, the originals when I was a kid and the newer versions (there have been lots) with my own children. Trust me, the original, early ones are a bit clonky now and lots of people have the rose-tinted glasses of nostalgia on for them. The newer versions, especially Mystery Inc., are great fun, very knowing and full of nods and winks to the adults they know will be watching with their kids. At the same time, the appearance of the characters is much the same, though Mystery Inc. has a slightly anime-styled look and a darker tone, both of which I think work.

I have seen the character designs for Be Cool Scooby Doo though and I'm not a fan (they look like caricatures of cartoon characters if that's even possible!) but I suspect it would make good marketing sense for both properties if the sets were based on the newest version.

It's interesting that the rumours here follow straight after the persistent rumours of possible Doctor Who sets or theme as Character Builder used to hold the rights to both (the clone version mentioned in comments above) - perhaps they both expired around the same time or they just stopped competing with Lego?

If they stick to 'traditional' designs for the characters, do good monsters and a good Mystery Machine (virtually the same in every version) then they should sell loads - I will be after multiples for me and the kids!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

My 4 and 6 year old kids love Scooby- Doo! They watch anything from the '70s shows right up to the newest shows, even the (awful) movies with the live actors and CGI Scooby - these will be mandatory purchases in our house!!

By in Poland,

It all depends of the design. If this will be like Cobi version - no, thanks. If like Monster Fighters - yes!
By the way - some people are speculating that monster themed CMF series 14 will be Scooby Doo.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Personally, I think it will be based on a new series coming this year, "Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!", based on LEGO's licensing trend. If it refers to older Scooby-Doo episodes, it's only after establishing the new TV series sets. Normally a new license would develop from a new installment of a series. Toy Story was a theme when Toy Story 3 was in theaters. Lord of the Rings become a theme because of The Hobbit movie trilogy. There are other examples as well, such as Indiana Jones and Star Wars.

It's the new show for sure. I bet 'The Mystery Machine' is whatever they are driving now instead of the classic van.

I'd love the classic van and a haunted lighthouse sounds nice too, but they will have crazy heads and cost way more than they should.

Gravatar
By in United States,

^ The gang's van has always been called the Mystery Machine. It's not a new vehicle, although it may be a newer take on it for the show.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am very happy about this new theme. I usually don't get excited about just the names of the sets in a theme without any pictures, but these all sound very intriguing. They sound like classic scenes for Scooby Doo!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

For everyone talking about "old school" you have to think about the primary market for these toys. WHole TLG does think about AFOLs the reason that they do stuff like this is that it is easy for some parents to relate to the products that they grew up with. Its a way to get people that would not normally buy Lego to get into the world. While I would like to see the old school stuff as well I understand that the reason that they do the new is that there is more of a presence of that media.

By in Germany,

Wot? This comes as unexpected as a slap in the face. Curious how these'll turn out.

Gravatar
By in United States,

What!? No Scooby Doo Mystery Copter Chase set? That's weird. I was certain there'd be a helicopter in there somewhere.

As long as TLG has the license I wonder if they could do a classic van in the same spirit of the Ecto-1 or dare I dream for a van in the scale of the VW Camper. Maybe do it as a store exclusive.

Holy Moly! I just Google'd an image of Be Cool Scooby Doo. Ol' Scoob looks completely insane compared to the playful dog he used to be.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Whoa..... I just googled the new show as well and Scooby and Shaggy look like they are on some form of illegal narcotic substance........ If the new sets look like this, you can count me out.

Gravatar
By in United States,

LOTR, Simpsons and Star Wars for me, Friends and Disney Princesses for my daughter, TMNT and The LEGO movie for my son, and now Scooby Doo for my wife (if she let's me get them)! Now we're truly a LEGO family!

Need the Creeper, for sure!

Probably shown at Nuremberg Toy fair at the end of the month or NYC in february.

I can understand why Lego grabbed this one. It's similar to the Simpsons and Ninja Turtles in it's incredible longevity and multi generational recognizability and appeal. It makes business sense. The show has been around for almost 50 years in one form or another. So it's not simply a nostalgia property, it's an almost never ending nostalgia property.

With that said I am really meh to these sets. Even as a wee lad in the late 60's and early 70's something about Scooby Doo more annoyed me then entertained me. And I grew up during Hanna Barberra's Renaissance when everything was a Scooby Doo clone. (Still have Jabberjaw nightmare flashbacks). I will probably grab a Mystery Machine, just to add it to my growing collection of fantasy and media vehicles, but unless that Mansion is on the scale of Haunted House or a Modular it will be a hard sell.

I hope it will like the superheroes sets which are a mixture of everything.

Even though I do feel excited about this, I kinda worry what the hero dog Scooby would be. We rarely see specific animal characters based on species that had generic versions in regular themes (patrol dogs, for example). Last year we got the very inaccurate Bruno from Cinderella and not sure if it's just another case.

Gravatar
By in United States,

A couple of comments:

First, where in the world did the idea for a Scooby Doo theme come from? Are they doing this for AFOLs? Is this a replacement for the Monster Fighter theme? I know my kids have no idea who Scooby Doo is. Just seems like it came out of left field...

As someone who remembers Scooby Doo well from Saturday morning cartoons, I do like the idea of the classic Mystery Machine as mentioned above. I would definitely get a copy or two of that set if it's reasonably well done and reasonably priced.

Jinkies! now that Fun, Fun, Fun, FUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNTASTIC!

I would think it is slotting in to the shelf space and target market of Ninja Turtles. And let's be honest with ourselves WE are not the target market beyond it is something that the Lego buying parent will be familiar and safe with while the kids are getting the latest version on TV. Plus the sets are in conjunction with WB and their CN who are a huge Lego partner these days between the Lego Movie and DC Superheroes (not to mention longstanding things like HP and LotR).

If you want to think of it this way, this is the replacement WB license for LotR/Hobbit and probably targeting roughly the same audience and play value as TMNT. Plus it has an added benefit of having cross gendered appeal for the young uns. Something a little hard to pull off at times.
